Your actions could influence the future of the Federation, and maybe its past. B-)
The 2nd half of the season is about to begin and I’m looking for a few players that can help me write the story by participating in a private campaign.
- Federation rules will not apply, therefore you may not use these characters in Federation public games.
- I am looking for four players minimum, they will need to be committed, cooperative and be a group players.
- It will be a bi-monthly group until at least November.
- It will be a private campaign in a private location, therefore you’ll need to have at least shown up at one of our Meetups and have met me.
- I encourage current DMs to sign up as it gives you the opportunity to weave in story elements into your public games.
Rather than hearing people say “I’ll play!”, give me your character concept. :mail: This can go very badly, who’s interested?!? :yahoo:June 25, 2019 at 1:36 pm #1064Sarah E. NuckollsModerator
Maybe… I’m really wanting to have a game with a circle of the moon druid that’s ongoing and not a Guild House game with people dropping in and out. However, I’m going to be in New York for a couple of weeks end of July-Early August. I guess what I’m saying is that I’m interested but probably overbooked and feeling druid-y so make me a possible player who will absolutely step aside for anyone more committed. If no one else is interested I’ll flesh out a druid and post it here.June 27, 2019 at 8:50 am #1069
Schedules permitting, I’m curious and interested in playing an Eldritch Knight Fighter (variant human).
Standard array/point buy for ability scores?June 28, 2019 at 11:42 am #1070
What date/time were you considering running these sessions? Can’t commit until I know the timeframe : )June 28, 2019 at 8:56 pm #1072
My saturdays are usually booked, so it would be every other week on fridays or sundays.June 28, 2019 at 9:38 pm #1073
I may be able to do that actually. I’ll try to think up a character conceptJuly 1, 2019 at 7:16 am #1074TylerModerator
I should be able to attend if games are hosted in the evenings. I work Fridays & Sundays :(July 4, 2019 at 8:57 am #1110breeannaModerator
I’d be interested, depending on what day you’ll decide to meet on! My Sunday nights are booked, but Friday would work fine for me. I’ve been tossing around a PC idea for a drow cleric of light or a yuan-ti half-blood druid, DM permitting.July 6, 2019 at 12:34 pm #1133
Revan Stone was little, even by Gnome Standards. Standing at 3′ 1″ tall (he swears on the 1″), he was never picked first for anything in his life. He turned to books, reading anything he could get his hands on. Sneaking into the library when he could, or others homes when he couldn’t, devouring all the knowledge he could. He caught the eye of one of the elders, an older woman who saw a lot of himself in her. One night, she caught him plundering the library. Instead of punishment, he started working as an assistant to the elder tomesmith, and began his journey to replace her as the ultimate source of knowledge in the tribe. Life was good, and he spent decades working there.
Organize books. Recopy worn texts. Memorize another history book. Dust the shelves.
Revan wasn’t sure if it was a gradual build up, or if it came on suddenly, but he remembers the moment he realized this life was not for him. It was just another day, rebinding an ancient tome, when he found it: sewn into the cover, was a map and an amulet bearing a strange symbol. Glancing down at it, the possibilities began to well up in his mind. This was not some story from the history books, or a solved mystery from their past, this was still unsolved. Something was out there, waiting.
He thought back to his days of sneaking around the village, of his favorite adventurers as a kid of Lone Heroes braving the worlds, tombs full of traps and treasure to be had. And he looked at his map, and the amulet. He knew, that before he settled down into this life, he needed some adventure of his own.
He slipped the amulet over his neck, left a note explaining for the tomesmith, and hit the road. He was no longer on the sidelines watching the other kids play; he was going to make a name for himself, and solve this mystery.
Revan Stone is a Neutral Good Forest Gnome Rogue, with an archaeologist background.
As he levels up, he would go Inquisitive Rogue.
I imagine him fighting with a whip as his main weapon, Indiana Jones Style. Even if he doesn’t have proficiency in it, he still uses it. He uses his brain and his agility to his advantage. I plan to get proficiency in it, either by taking a feat at level 4, possibly switching my race to Variant Human to get it at 1, spend some downtime training it in via downtime training rules, or possibly trading out class feature for it per your Discretion (Thieves Cant doesn’t make much sense as he’s not a rogue in a traditional sense, but he might have had to turn to that life to sustain himself since he left his village).
Still early stages of thoughts.July 11, 2019 at 2:17 pm #1145
The joke had started making the rounds almost as soon as Tristan had began his apprenticeship. It usually started something like this:
“That boy’s got the sharpest eye in the business!”
“He’d better; he’s only got the one!”
Tristan Kloss grew up in a small mining town, the poor son of a poor miner. The story of how he lost his eye was a subject of some small mystery to the locals, though popular gossip had it that he’d been improper with the blacksmith’s daughter in his irresponsible adolescence and ran afoul of a hot poker. In any case, he certainly learned his lesson. The reckless, rambunctious little boy was replaced with a more somber and serious young man, determined to make something of himself beyond the fortunes of his poor family. Shortly before leaving home for the first time, he scraped together enough coin to purchase a sword, shield, and armor, then set forth on the road.
It took time, but he eventually found himself apprenticed to a jeweler in the nearest city, learning the craft of refining the products of his father’s efforts for sale to people with more money than skill or sense. Every day he practiced his trade, and every night he practiced with his sword against imaginary foes in the solitude of his too-small room until finally collapsing into sleep, repeating the process again on waking. This went on for the better part of two or three years as the master craftsman milked his service for all it was worth. He didn’t spend his evenings after work carousing like the other young men in the city, and so had no real friends. Hardly anyone besides his master seemed to acknowledge his existence. Without realizing it, he’d begun to fall into a pattern scarcely different from those of his father and the men in the mines back home.
This finally changed when, one night after lingering a bit later than usual to finish some work, he stumbled across a member of the local thieves’ guild who hadn’t realized he was still there before attempting to burgle the shop. Tristan’s well-honed reflexes saved him that night, costing the unfortunate thief a couple fingers as well. For the first time in he couldn’t recall how long, Tristan felt alive in a way that was almost intoxicating.
And the next day it was back to his routine, like the previous night’s adventure had never happened. Only now the fire in Tristan’s heart and mind smoldered, refusing to be doused again.
Almost the moment his apprenticeship was deemed complete the young man set out upon the road again, this time to seek his fortunes in a more immediate and exhilarating fashion.
Tristan Kloss is a variant human fighter with the guild artisan background and the ritual caster feat, a precursor to becoming an eldritch knight.July 14, 2019 at 10:07 am #1149
I may be considering a drow barbarian as an alternative for my eldritch knight.
Looks like Friday nights work for just about everyone. Do we have an idea of when the game will start yet?July 30, 2019 at 9:31 pm #1156
I took a bit of a break but still wanting to explore this. Looks like we have an end date for season 1 already planned so this will help me plan as well. You’ll hear from me soon, love all the background work.August 5, 2019 at 3:47 pm #1158
